    Had a cat "formally" named Osiris, but I just called him Cat (all he ever responded to). Of the current brood, Clover's called "Fat Butt," and Trilby is "Drain Bamaged Kitty."

    - Dorian
    - Velvetah
    - Gary
    - Dorian Antanozgaryson Señor Senior
    - Cheryl
    - Poochqua
    - Jaques Pulet
    - Nancy
    - Nancy Jean
    - Max Nancy
    - Maxime
    - Maximus

    (and he responded to all of them)

    My new dog Phoebe (Black Lab)
    - Karen
    - Sharon
    - Sandy
    - Shandy
    - Weebs
    - Phoebeweeby

    I have a white husky (well, husky mix) named Caleb.

    He's got two nicknames, Pickle and Noodle, which he responds to. Noodle came about since it describes his personality (he's actually a very sweet dog as dogs go and very easy-going); and Pickle happened by chance when I was getting the pickles from the 'fridge and he responded to the word 'pickle' during the course of a conversation with my family. Out of them all, he prefers Pickle the most.

    I have a three year old Australian Shepherd. Her name is Darby, but she has her fair share of nicknames

    Darby Dog
    Darby Duck (She loves to swim)
    Darbs
    The Darbaroony
    Darbski

    The all incorporate her name in there for the most part. A nickname that survived from my old dog is 'the poopster'. They were both the kind of dogs that if they aren't going 100% they're asleep. Hence, being pooped out.

    My parents had a dog called Tiny (small, black crossbreed) named after a similar looking dog my mum used to have. I didn't see her much, I think Tiny died when I was about 4 or so.
    Deek, an alsation.
    Now we've got Muffy! Who looks similar to Tiny again. That's all I call her really, that and stupid dog (she barks at herself in the mirror).

    Had a tropical fish tank, full of fish with names like Comet, Sonic and that usual jazz.

    My dog Fester has become Vista, because he is unresponsive and crashes whenever he wants. His speech recognition is terrible and he also doesnt like it when I plug in the external USB drive. :D

    Our cat's name is Oscar, but we have so many nicknames for him that I couldn't even tell you all of them. That, and it would be a little embarrassing. :eek:
